What the club says: The 18 hole, 6505 yard, par 71 course may not be the length that today’s course designers favour, but in the 1880’s they knew how to create a challenge using the natural contours of a hilltop location. The course is full of variety and is laid out over fine ‘golfing country’.

Reviewed Jun 24 2018 by Bournemouth - rated 4 out of 5
Overall brilliant just can’t understand why you go from fairway to first cut of about an inch higher then 2ft of rough when if you had a cut of say 6ft in the deep rough of 4” to 6” high it would speed up play and still hamper the shot. I went in to the deep rough by a foot never to find my ball in an important match to us. This might sound sour grapes but when I knew I was coming to play Bath Golf Club I expected it to be the bees knees, but the course as regards the manicuring of the grass very disappointing.

Great Views of Bath - Plays Long

Course is very forgiving , not particularly difficult or challenging but does play long meaning your continually hitting long irons into greens. A pleasant course with great views.

Nice course. Not recommended for a beginner. I think its a bit pricey for what you get compared to other courses.

It's alright but not that interesting. The holes 9 to 18 are pretty boring. Very open without any definition. I'd only play if there was a cheap deal on

Compelled to review my home course. Not the longest but a great test, looks really easy on the card but Harry Colt left plenty of challenges and the local knowledge really counts on where to put the ball in the fairways and into some of the greens - the short 7th being a perfect example.
High above Bath it really is an all weather course, draining the rain away super quickly. Busier in the week than at weekends. Great practice ground above the 17th fairway especially to hone the knockdown shots into the wind.

Lovely lovely park land course. Very fair fairways, greens are really tough to read. Done us a great deal on price's for our four ball. Never seen a course drain like it apparently only a foot of top soil then solid rock base. Clubhouse refurbished and very nice.

Great old course with views over the city of Bath, always seems to be in good condition due to its natural drainage. Greens and tees perfect, but watch out for slow playing members.
